Winter storm

The snow blows everywhere
The sky glows a dull gray
The eyes almost see trees
A dark outline through swirling white

The sound fills the air
Whistling in the windows
The whole world has stopped
Frozen in ice

The world is cold to the touch
Smooth and unforgiving
Danger greets all who would face it
Everyone tells us not to face this danger

A window allows the eyes to see the beauty,
Yet the body is enjoying warmth
The wind is heard but not felt
There is safety as the elements are walled out

The body knows that it cannot remain in doors forever
Soon the wind will sting the face
Hands will be numb from the cold
There will be pain, yet it will be good

The snow is beautiful
Today is a day to enjoy
